When it comes to parenting, if there's one thing you need, above all else... it's patience. Money is nice. Love is good and definitely important. But patience is the greatest key.
It doesn't matter how old your little angel is, there are going to be plenty of moments when they test your patience. They're going to spill things. They're going to talk back to you. They're going to fight and argue with their siblings. They are going to push your buttons!
Patience isn't that easy to come by at times like these, nor is it that easy to hold onto, but if you manage to grasp that slippery sucker in your shaky fingers, hold on tight because you're going to need it!
